Apple Health Core Connections

The Apple Health Foster Care (AHFC) program known as Apple Health Core Connections is a managed care program that provides coordinated health care services for:

  • Children and youth in foster care.
  • Extended foster care.
  • Adoption support.
  • Young adult alumni of the foster care program.

As directed by the state legislature, the Health Care Authority (HCA) moved foster care children in fee-for-service Medicaid (ProviderOne) into a managed care plan in January 2019. Through a competitive bidding process, the HCA selected Coordinated Care (Apple Health Core Connections) as the statewide plan to provide AHFC services.
